Change the name of Robert Lee Moore Hall to Big Shaq Hall

Robert Lee Moore was a known racist. As a logical continuation of the removal of the Confederate Statues along the Main Mall, Robert Lee Moore Hall (RLM) should be renamed. If it were to be renamed, black students would no longer have to attend classes and meet professors in a building they would not have been welcomed in in the not-so-distant past. Naming a building after someone is an honor, and Robert Lee Moore was a person not worthy of being honored. Also, his nose was long like garden hose.

The perfect person for the renaming to honor is Big Shaq. He exemplifies all that the University of Texas Mathematics Department stands for: pushing the boundaries of quick maths, and hopping out of four doors with a 44 (which was 1, 2, 3, and 4). Roadman Shaq has taken quick maths to levels humanity had never seen before his appearance on Fire in the Booth. His revolutionary idea that not only was two plus two four, but also minus one that's three was truly extraordinary. Having mathematics courses in a building named Big Shaq Hall (BS) would remind students every time they see the massive plaque with his name, wear their commemorative jackets (which they will not take off, as mans not hot), or chill in the corridor with their dad whomst'd've is 44 that they are in the company of greatness and they can achieve things that others would not have thought possible.
